SUPER 8 (PG-13)
PARAMOUNT PICTURES (2011)
Starring: Joel Courtney, Riley Griffiths, Ryan Lee, Gabriel Basso, Elle Fanning & more.
J.J. Abrams directs this Sci-Fi flick that gives nod to producer Steven Spielberg's early films. Six
kids are in the midst of making a Zombie film with their super 8 camera. One night they sneak out
of their homes and head down to the train station to film one of the scenes for the film. During the
filming a train passes them and then derails itself in a huge train wreck explosion. They all run for
their lives, but then later realize they got it all on film. The military & government have been
cleaning up the wreckage and don't reveal that something has escaped from one of the rail cars. The
kids and the town will soon find out what escaped, but it all may be too late by then. This was a
very cool throwback type Sci-Fi flick well worth viewing.
